I Only Have Eyes For You

Do you love that song? Yes? I DO!

I used a sheet of acetate to create a mirror image of the bird. Just stamp your image onto acetate. I used my homemade stamp press tool to add as much ink as I could to the acetate. Then I pressed the acetate to the card. If you see any missed spots, simply use a black marker (I use a black Copic or black Memento marker as they are compatible with Copic marker coloring) to fill in the line image.

Looking at these two birds, well, I guess not too many other birds would have eyes for them. I colored them kinda kooky cause I don't know. Maybe I should have stopped before I went nuts with the Blender Pen.

They "used to be" a fairly decent shade of colors before the dots and lines got added :) Once again, I've gone too far. But can you FIND the BIG DIPPER? It's upside down. Maybe these are strange unknown birds in Tasmania :D Anywhooo! I do love nighttime scenes just to shake it up a bit.
